Bungie Sues A Trio Of Destiny 2 Cheat Services

Destiny 2 has a big announcement coming up next week, but in the meantime, Bungie is taking care of business -- the "business" of taking down companies that make cheat software for Destiny 2, that is.

TorrentFreak reports that Bungie filed lawsuits against three such companies yesterday: Elite Boss Tech, Kunsal Bansal, and VeteranCheats.com. Elite Boss Tech manufactures an "ESP Hack" and aimbot, Kunsal Bansal provides an aimbot and tools that provide additional ammunition and other features, and VeteranCheats offers an aimbot, ammo hacks, and "unlimited lives."

In all three cases, Bungie is alleging infringement of their DMCA rights, as well as violation of the Washington Consumer Protection Act, among other breaches of contract -- you know, the contract you agree to when you hit that little check mark after you've read the terms of service for a new game. (You do read the terms of service, don't you?) Bungie is seeking an injunction against all three companies, destruction of their cheats, and millions of dollars in damages.

I won't get too much on a high horse here by telling you "don't cheat, kids" -- you shouldn't, naturally -- but even if you don't care about how your cheating affects others ("its only a game lul"), think about how it can affect you. "Companies" like these, as well as any that offer speedy leveling, gold, or other cash-based services, are shady operations that have an above-average chance of using the payment info you provide to them to do who-knows-what and leave you with the bill. Bungie doesn't even have the names of most of the people behind these outfits, many of whom are based overseas, and there's a non-zero chance that they'll disappear into the ether and face no consequences for their actions. Does that sound like the sort of people you'd want to give your credit card digits to?
